My family has visited Gatlinburg many times, but this will be our first trip at Thanksgiving. I am looking for suggestions for a hotel on the parkway (4 teens that like to roam around town on their own). We like a view of the parkway (for people watching) and mountain views, and I assume a view of Christmas lights (are they really nice displays?). We have stayed at several parkway hotels on previous visits; just want to make sure we are not missing any good ones. Thanks in advance for your opinions!
